With pastedowns and endleaves from a contemporary 4to liturgical service book printed in red and black. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum. Early ownership inscription of the second Jesuit college in the Americas, "El Collegio de S. P[edr]o y S. Pablo" on title page, and personal ownership inscription in an early hand of a Jesuit father, Padre Diego de Lacios [?] on the front cover. Vellum somewhat shrunken due to age, exposing margin of a few leaves to minor soiling, otherwise an extremely crisp copy, excellent. A fine and very genuine copy of the rare first edition of Pablo José de Arriaga's rich account of the Indians of Peru at the turn of the 17th century. Intended as a manual to help clerics identify native "superstitions", the work is filled with minute details describing Indian ceremonies, medicines, and beliefs. Thanks to the all too effective execution of Arriaga's duties, the Extirpacion de la Idolatria del Piru ironically remains the original go-to source for much ethnographic and anthropological information on the very cultures he was trying to eradicate. Recorded by an eye-witness on the eve of the final cultural obliteration of Incan and pre-Incan civilizations in the 17th century, Arriaga's account is one of the earliest ethnographic records of post-Conquest Peru and an essential source for the historical reconstruction of now-lost Peruvian cultures.

MERCURIO, Scipione Girolamo
appresso Gio. Battista Ciotti MDC.XXI. (1621) In 8° (19,5 x 14); tre libri in un unico volume; legatura novecentesca in mezza pergamena con tassello al dorso ; capolettera ornati; pp. (26) così segnate: frontisp. , cc. b-b4, c-c4 + pp. 362 (manca l'ultimo capitolo dedicato al "budello uscito di luogo alle creature"). Mancano le pp.113-114 col frontisp. del Libro Secondo e le .pp 241-242; un piccolo segno di tarlo attraversa il testo, che resta comprensibile, delle pp. 353-362. Malamente restaurato il frontisp. del Libro Primo e le ultime due pagine; carta brunita con tracce di umido; per il resto in discrete condizioni.Il testo delle prime 26 pagine non sembra lacunoso (nonostante manchino le carte a-a4), ma non siamo riusciti a trovare notizie su questa edizione per fare un confronto. Questo è anche il motivo per cui ci è ignoto il numero delle pagine mancanti dopo pag. 362.Il testo è illustrato da 30 belle xilografie (nelle altre edizioni 31; ne manca una?) molte delle quali a piena pagina illustranti l'anatomia femminile, le presentazioni fetali, gli strumenti ginecologici, il parto cesareo ecc.Sostanzialmente esemplare mal conservato di un'opera assai rara che rappresenta il primo trattato di ostetricia in lingua italiana la cui prima edizione, introvabile, vide la luce nel 1595.

ISRAEL, SILVESTRE.
Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 12 x 20 (alla lastra), in basso a sn. "Grav? par Israel Silvestre" (e il numero 2 poco sopra all'inizio della dicitura), in basso a destra "Avec privil. du R."; foglio in primo stato, con bella filigrana di gallo (o rapace) con ali spiegate. Silvestre Israel (Nancy, 3 agosto, 1621 - Parigi, 11 ottobre 1691), appartenente a una famiglia di artisti francesi, fu disegnatore e incisore. Dopo la morte dei genitori, nel 1631, fu mandato a Parigi con lo zio Israel Henriet, grazie al quale imparer? a disegnare e a incidere; e grazie allo zio conoscer? Callot e Della Bella. Tra il 1638 e il 1641 (si pensa nel 1640), Silvestre compir? un primo viaggio in Italia; un secondo viaggio sar? quello del 1643, un terzo nel 1653. Dopo la seconda visita in Italia vengono pubblicate le "Vues d'Italie (1643 circa). Fu artista fin troppo prolifico, numerosissime sono le sue opere, tant'? che ? quasi impossibile redigerne un inventario completo, avendo egli realizzato circa mille pezzi. Tra queste citiamo: "Vues de Paris et des environs" (1645), "Ports de mer" (1648), "Paysages" (1654), un secondo set di "Vues d'Italie", il "Balletto Reale Noces de T?tis" (1655), Vues de ch?teaux (1658) dedicate a Luigi XIV. Dal 1662; incise lastre per il re: "Course de t?tes et de bagues" (1662), "Plaisirs de l'isle enchant?e" (1664) e "Ch?teaux royaux". Il suo stile fu, all'inizio, piuttosto sciolto, ma a partire dalla pubblicazione delle prime "Vues d'Italie" divenne pi? raffinato e delicato, acquisendo accuratezza e precisione senza essere asciutto; a volte era simile … [Click Below for Full Description]

This work was reprinted same place in 1642, 1653 and in Francfurt in 1647.Aldrovandi (1522 - 1605) had planned a great biological work dealing with fish, plants, minerals, quadrupeds etc., but only four volumes (two works) appeared in his lifetime. The remaining works were left as manuscripts to the city of Bologna and printed posthumously. As a multi-talented genius Aldrovandi studied mathematics, law and philosophy under the best of each field in this period, until he, around 1545, decided to study medicine at the University of Padua.As the consequence of a charge of heresy (probably due to him having studied in Padua, a main centre for the teachings of Averröes), he was obliged to go to Rome to clear himself of the accusation. On this trip he met Rondelet, the acquaintance with whom finally caused him to study natural history, the branch for which he later claimed s … [Click Below for Full Description]

James I and VI (King of England, Scotland and Ireland 1566-1625)
Westminster, 1621. Westminster, March 18, 1621. Four pages in secretary hand, to Sir James Ley, Lord Chief Justice (Jan. 21, 1621 - Jan. 26, 1625), written by "Edmunds" (likely written as a draft or file copy) on behalf of King James I. Each page about 31 x 38 cm, folded twice with some folds cracking, and general staining, but text legible and complete. The text of the commission was read into the Journals of the House of Lords, but the whereabouts of the official copy are unknown. Housed in a custom, quarter-leather display portfolio.& & On March 14, 1621 the first complaint of corruption was raised against Sir Francis Bacon, then Lord Chancellor of England. The Parliament formally charged Bacon with corruption on March 19th, leading to his eventual conviction. Bacon responded to the charges with the following famous sentence: "And for the briberies and gifts wherewith I am charged, when the books of hearts shall be open, I hope I shall not be found to have the troubled fountain of a corrupt heart in a depraved habit of taking rewards to pervert justice; howsoever I may be frail, and partake of the abuses of the times." Sir James Ley oversaw the proceedings against Bacon and on May 3rd handed down the harsh sentence, which included: a £40,000 fine, a period of imprisonment in the Tower of London, banishment from holding state office, and exclusion from Parliament and James'; court. Bacon spent a brief time in the Tower of London, but much of the sentence was pardoned by King James.& & In a royal display of tact, the commission to Sir Ley makes no reference to the char … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jean De La Fontaine
Hardcover Very Good. Hardcover Very Good Book. d la f. An early copy of La Fontaine's fables, translated into English. Featuring a portrait frontispiece and numerous further illustrations by Gustave Dore. Translation by Walter Thornbury. Jean de La Fontaine (IPA: [ tn]; July 8, 1621, Chteau-Thierry April 13, 1695, Paris) was the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. He is known above all for his Fables, which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, and in French regional languages. La Fontaine had many predecessors in the fable, especially in the beast fable. The poet took inspiration from Aesop, Horace, Boccaccio and Ariosto and Tasso, Machiavelli's comedies, and Eastern stories that in his epoch were transmitted through translations from the Persian. (Louis Auguste) Gustave Dore (18321883). A child prodigy, Dor received little formal artistic training, but his talents as a draughtsman were already apparent during his school years. His first lithographic album was published by Aubert in Paris in 1847. After three years working under contract as a caricaturist for the editor Charles Philipon (18001862), he added book illustration to his repertory. Dore's production as an illustrator remains unmatched for scope or ambition. Among his major works are editions of Rabelais (2nd expanded edn, 1873), Balzac (Contes drolatiques, 1855), Dante (Divine Comedy, 1861, 1868), Charles Perrault (Fables, 1862), Cervantes (Don Quixote, 1863), Milton (Paradise Lo … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERNÁNDEZ DE NAVARRETE, Pedro.
Barcelona, Por Sebastian de Cormellas, 1621. 4°, early limp vellum (stained, loosening). Text within a double-rule border. A few faint stains. In fine condition. Inscription in ink on title-page by Dr. Schonleben for the Graf von Auersperg, dated 1656. Bookplate of the Auersperg collection. (2), 80 ll., with numerous errors in foliation. *** FIRST EDITION, with references to the Americas and a discussion of the impact of overseas possessions on domestic policy. The author comments at length on a consulta of the Real Consejo de Castilla that had been written by Diego del Coral y Arellano. The consulta dealt with the marked decline in the population of Castile, and made brief recommendations on how to change that trend. Fernández de Navarrete elaborates on these measures, which included cutting taxes, decreasing the number of people at Court who were exempt from taxation, reducing the Court's expenditures, allowing fewer religious houses to be established, and setting a minimum age for entering religious orders. These suggestions were further developed in the author's Conservacion de monarquias, Madrid, 1626. Fernández de Navarrete was a canon of Santiago de Compostela and royal chaplain and secretary; he also published translations of Seneca. According to the letter from Miguel de Prats to Fernández de Navarrete that serves as a preface to this volume, the Discursos were published without the author's knowledge. Prats, a protégé of Fernández de Navarrete's brother Alfonso (who died a martyr in Japan), found a manuscript of the work in the luggage of a man who had died in Bar … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRICOLA, Georgius
Ludovici Regis, Basil 1621 - Folio (8" x 12-1/2") bound in library buckram; irregularly paginated: [10], 502, [58] pages. Illustrated with 273 woodcuts, many full and half page, some signed with the monogram "RMD," and generally attributed to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch (fl.1525-1572) or, less commonly, Blasius Weffring. Previously published in 1556 and 1561, this edition seems scarcer than either of the previous. PRINTING & THE MIND OF MAN 79: "The first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times." Herbert Hoover, who first translated this book into English, described this title in his autobiography as "the first important attempt to assemble systematically in print the world-knowledge on mining, metallurgy, and industrial chemistry. It was the great textbook of those industries for two centuries and had dominated thought and practice all that time. In many mining regions and camps, including the Spanish South America, it was chained to the church altar and translated by the priest to the miners between religious services." The book combines a profound technical and financial knowledge of mining with an underlying interest in the health and daily routine of mine workers. The woodcut impressions are strong and dark. As customary with this title, there is browning throughout, occasionally heavy. Small piece of title page repaired with no loss of text or illustration; ink names of David Stuart dated 1771 and Joseph Robertson dated 1830 on title page.

London. Printed by N.Oakes for Arthur Johnson. 1621 2nd edition. 8vo. In later blue stiff paper covers. The original covers have gone and at some time in the distant past, have been replaced with stiff paper covers. These are now heavily marked and the front is detached. The inside pages, however, are original, intact and complete. Title hand written to front and to small paper label on spine. Inscription to main title page. First and last few pages slightly rubbed at edges. Occasional small marks. 263, 138pp. Theological argument about Tythes, published in the reign of James I of England. Also bound in is Philologicall Passages Examined. The book was published in answer to John Selden’s History of tithes which argued that clergy had a legal but not a divine right to tithes and that tithes were not ordained by God's law. This was seen as implying a separation of state law and divine law, challenging the Divine Right of Kings.
